North Kingstown police have arrested 27-year-old Joseph Howell after an investigation of Monday night's break-in at Davisville Middle School.
Surveillance footage shows a suspect carrying bolt cutters and wearing a white mask to cover his face inside the school on Monday. Extensive damage was done to the building as well as the classroom equipment.
Detectives believe that neither the staff or students were the target of the crime; rather, it was simply a "random act of vandalism."
Howell was arraigned today in District Court this morning on charges of breaking and entering and vandalism.
